NVIDIA Fleshes-Out New Quadro Pro Graphics Offering Infused With Powerful Pascal GPUs

Having previously launched the high-end Quadro P5000 and P6000 cards based on Pascal, in Q4, NVIDIA returned in February with both the new monster flagship Quadro GP100 card, as well the more moderately-priced Quadro P4000 and Quadro P2000. The Quadro P4000 will retail in the $800 and $500 range, respectively, and take on AMD’s recently launched Radeon Pro WX 7100 and WX 5100 cards in the pro graphics mid-tier. In the benchmarks, the NVIDIA Quadro P4000 and P2000 matched-up competitively versus the AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100 and WX 5100. NVIDIA’s complete Pascal-powered Quadro stack now looks like this, from top to bottom: Quadro GP100, Quadro P6000, Quadro P5000, Quadro P4000 and Quadro P2000, though likely previous generation Maxwell-based cards will remain in market for a while alongside them. You can expect to see the Quadro GP100, Quadro P4000 and Quadro P2000 arrive next month, shipping worldwide.

Rickie Fowler Weathers a Storm to Win the Honda Classic

Fowler turned a Sunday stroll into high drama on the par-4 sixth when his drive found the water hazard. After taking a one-stroke penalty, he found the fairway with his next shot but was 77 yards from the pin. But then Fowler sank his 38-footer at 12 to give himself some breathing room at 12 under. “Kind of a little bonus was making a great swing on 16 in there and having almost a tap-in birdie, just give myself enough cushion going into the last two holes,” Fowler said. “I would have liked to have a little bit cleaner card today and played a little bit better,” Fowler said, adding, “but this is a good one.”

Live Chat: Oscars 2017

With recent changes to its membership, the Academy is longing to put #OscarsSoWhite behind them. But this year, of course, the question is not if the show will be political, but how political it will be - even if viewing audiences are tuning in for a palate-cleanser. The Oscars can be a cultural distraction, no doubt. Though when the choices boil down to fabulism (“La La Land”), realism (“Moonlight”) or long-overdue historicism (“Hidden Figures”), it still feels like we’re part of the political conversation — whether the President tweets about it or not.

President Trump’s Pick for Navy Secretary Withdraws

WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump’s choice for Secretary of the Navy withdrew from consideration on Sunday, citing financial concerns, making him the second of Mr. Trump’s three service secretary nominees to bow out. Philip Bilden, a private-equity investor whom Mr. Trump appointed to the Navy’s top civilian post in late January, said in a written statement that the divestment required to comply with Pentagon ethics rules would...

Wizards drop second straight amid fouls and frustration vs. Jazz

The Washington Wizards enjoyed an almost untarnished rise through the Eastern Conference by winning 15 of 17 games before the all-star break. The Wizards lost, 102-92, to Utah and for the second game in a row stumbled into a double-digit hole. Beal was called for his third foul with 5:09 remaining in the second quarter. For the game, Utah connected on 23 of 32 free throws, while Washington finished 10 for 13. Four-and-half minutes expired before the Wizards scored, and by that time, Brooks already had begun replacing the substitutes with starters.

Samsung Confirms Galaxy S8 Launch Date To Upset Competition

Earlier this year Samsung confirmed that it would not be launching the Galaxy S8 family of devices at this week’s Mobile World Congress. The company’s traditional MWC press conference focused on the new Galaxy Book 10 and Book 12 tablets running Windows 10 but it also took fifteen seconds to tease the Galaxy S8. The delay to the Galaxy S8 is believed to be down to the long investigation of the battery issues found in the incendiary Galaxy Note 7 phablet. But today’s news about the Galaxy S8 launch wasn’t about reassuring the public. It was about taking away some of the momentum that the S8’s rivals could gain from Mobile World Congress.

Navy secretary nominee Philip Bilden withdraws

Story highlights Philip Bilden is the second service secretary nominee to withdraw because of financial interestsVincent Viola withdrew as Army secretary nominee earlier this month(CNN) President Trump's nominee for secretary of the Navy, Philip Bilden, has withdrawn his name from consideration, Bilden and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said Sunday in statements. Both Bilden's and Mattis' statements said Bilden's business interests created complications. "After an extensive review process," Bilden said, "I have determined that I will not be able to satisfy the Office of Government Ethics requirements without undue disruption and materially adverse divestment of my family's private financial interests." Mattis said: "This was a personal decision driven by privacy concerns and significant challenges he faced in separating himself from his business interests." Mattis said he'd recommend another nominee to Trump in the coming days.

U.S. Forces Play Crucial Role Against ISIS in Mosul

Iraq’s federal police have fully secured the Mosul airport, while Iraq’s elite counterterrorism service seized a nearby military base last week. But the toughest part of the battle — the house-to-house combat in the narrow streets of the old part of western Mosul — still lies ahead. The Islamic State’s military tactics have also added to the challenge. 2 Iraqi government-controlled 1 Eastern Mosul ISIS-controlled Western Mosul 2 Mosul Tigris Baghdad IRAQ 1 IRAQ Hamam al-Alil 10 Miles 2 Iraqi govt.-controlled 1 Eastern Mosul ISIS-controlled 2 Western Mosul ERBIL PROVINCE Tigris 1 10 Miles Hamam al-AlilWith the encouragement of the Americans, the Iraqi strategy has been to mount an attack on multiple axes to present the militants with more problems than they can handle. So the United States military has used its firepower to try to mitigate the drone problem, just as it targeted ISIS’s car bomb factories, mortar teams and command posts.

Stanley Dearman, Editor Who Sought Justice in 1964 Murders, Dies at 84

At a time when rigid segregation reigned in the Deep South, Mr. Dearman, a Mississippi native, called for justice in a case that became a pivotal moment in the civil rights movement. A deputy sheriff in Philadelphia had arrested the civil rights workers on minor charges earlier in the day, then released them after alerting the mob. In editorials and articles, Mr. Dearman implored state officials to bring criminal charges. “It’s time for an accounting,” Mr. Dearman wrote in a 2000 editorial. Mr. Dearman once estimated that he had taken at least 400 people to the site where the civil rights workers were killed, lest their murders be forgotten.
